Sow Took the Measles

 How do you think I begin in the world?
 I got me a sow and sev'ral other things;
 Sow or hog or some such thing
 The sow took the measles and died in the spring

 What do you think that I made of her hide?
 The very best saddle that you ever did ride;
 Saddle or bridle or any such a thing,
 The sow took the measles and died in the spring

 What do you think that I made of her nose?
 The very best thimble that ever sewed clothes;
 Thimble or thread or any such thing,
 The sow took the measles and died in the spring

 What do you think I made of her tail?
 The very best whup that ever sought sail;
 Whup or whup-socket, any such thing
 The sow took the measles and died in the spring

 What do you think that I made of her feet?
 The very best pickles that you ever did eat;
 Pickles or glue or any such thing,
 The sow took the measles and died in the spring
